Thread Name: Lyr Req: Earl Richard (#68, from Rod Paterson)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: rod paterson's earl richard #68
One more thing. I've already received the remark that countess richard has made in this thread: what's the use of getting exactly the lines of some recording of a traditional song. I think that traditional songs and ballads are so interesting in their matching of notes and words, and each combination is unique, with its own rythms, and some verses are better than others. A singer will choose what to do, but I find it interesting to know and compare the different choices. So won't you please, please help me? R
